Disney and Florida Reach Settlement in Legal Disputes as Governor DeSantis and CEO Iger End Special District Controversy

Disney and the state of Florida have resolved their legal dispute over control of the district responsible for managing development around the company’s theme parks.

Nelson Peltz voices his criticism of Disney’s “woke” film strategy, citing examples such as ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Marvels’.

Disney has reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed against them in state court. The lawsuit accused the entertainment giant of secretly arranging last-minute agreements to unlawfully maintain control over the development surrounding its theme park.

According to a statement by Jeff Vahle, president of Walt Disney World Resort, this agreement marks the beginning of a positive relationship with the district’s new leadership. It will benefit all parties involved by allowing for substantial investments, as well as the creation of numerous job opportunities and economic growth in the State.

Judge Throws Out Lawsuit Against Disney for VFX Technology Used in ‘Avengers’ Films

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Disney that claimed the company had infringed on patented visual effects (VFX) technology used in the “Avengers” movies. The lawsuit was filed by Red Giant Productions, a visual effects software company, which alleged that Disney had used their patented VFX software without permission.

However, the judge ruled that Red Giant’s patent was not infringed upon by Disney, stating that the technology used in the “Avengers” films was not covered by Red Giant’s patent. The judge also noted that Red Giant’s patent was invalid due to prior art, meaning that similar technology had already been in use before the patent was filed.

This ruling is a victory for Disney, as it clears them of any wrongdoing in their use of VFX technology in the “Avengers” movies. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of conducting thorough research and due diligence when filing patents to ensure their validity and enforceability.

Members of the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District board, selected by Gov. Ron DeSantis following Disney’s objection to the “Don’t Say Gay” law, have given their approval to the deal. This law limits classroom instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation.

Michael Eisner expresses his support for the Disney board and Bob Iger in the ongoing proxy fight.
